Besides being product crazy,I'm a full throttle fashion fanatic. Now some people think that because you love to shop means that you love fashion.My cousin likes to shop for furniture so much she buys a new living room set each year. That's doesn't necessarily make her fashion obssessed.I'm all about the magazines,fashion TV shows, NY fashion week,trunk shows,the history of designers' fashion houses,biographies of designers(my fave:Coco Chanel),fabric,detail and design, retail and merchandising(I love window displays!)and yes,shopping. I'm constantly building my wardrobe into the ultimate comfort zone.Somewhere I can go knowing I have "something" to wear. My style is not easily summed up into one word.However I'm not a chameleon.I would try to decibe my style NOW as casual-sexy-luxe-natural-bohemian glam!!! Whew!I love the basic palette of browns,tans,grey.black,and white teames with splashes of color or sparkle in accessorizing.I'm a big handbag girl who layers tanks and loves a long skirt.I've had jobs in the past that I had to get "Corporate" but they never work out for other reasons but my reason is always I can't get "dressed up". Now, I got some friends and sorors who can wear a suit and pumps like a million bucks. But I always look like a clown because I'm that casual. My typical go to outfit would be a white Old Navy tank with a black James Perse tank,long tan peasant skirt(yes,I'm still hooked on this trend!) ,long beaded necklaces layered,flip flops or ballet flats, curly floppy hair pulled in messy bun,huge bag. One girlfriend of mine once told me I look like one of celebrity pictures in Us Weekly of the Hollywood girls lunching!
My fav must have pieces now are above:
The acacia sandals from my favorite store Anthropologie.I have very similiar pair for a lot less that I wear with my long skirts in a muted bronze.
This eggplant strapless dress from C&C California. It draps around the midsection so that helps camouflage my mommy belly that's now going on two years old:) plus C&C's cotton is so comfy and cool I would put on some beads around my neck my thin silver hoops and be done!
Speaking of Anthropologie,I found the most amazing large brown suede hobo with eggplant tassles by Anthropologie at Marshall's yesteday for $40!!! Tags attached and everything.The retail price on it was $228.00.
Well off to eat my spicy tuna sushi I picked up at Fresh Market!
